it's a missile factory
sr. manufacturing engineer (Former Employee), andover maJuly 23, 2014
Pros: always something different
Cons: too many managers not knowing what they're doing
the only thing that makes sense is that nothing makes sense
all training is legal protection for the company to be held against you as needed
great people - pay is decent and benefits aren't terrible
antiquated processes and equipment
everyone in their own little bubble with no accountability
so concerned with trivial minutia that the obvious gets overlooked
direct – more... labor union employees run the show
if not part of the good old boy network don't expect any longevity
the miracle is that any good product is actually produced – less

Major aerospace company
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), El Segundo, CAJuly 9, 2014
Pros: benefits, opportunities, friendships with coworkers, students and instructor.

Work days were not really "typical." Tasks and responsibilities were customer-driven.

Learned word processing (pre-personal computer); working independently; contracts and business law; team-work.

I enjoyed working with the various students, especially those who were attending on-line university classes at our facility. It was great to see how they – more... grew and matured, and advanced in their careers through their education. – less

I love Raytheon and their culture....I respect my bosses completely. Awesome company that rewards initiative. Bonuses given for exceeding expectations for your job. My supervisors completely respect me and my skills and support all of my decisions. I am able to go to work in the hours needed to satisly our contract and have never been second guessed – more... about my performance. Respect all of my co-workers, military and Raytheon. They are all top-of-he line. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the current DGS construct. The most enjoyable part of my job is dealing with the current graduates of the intelligence technical schools...I truly believe in this current generation....they are always pushing me to exceed my goals! – less

IT Project Manager to VP/CIO (Former Employee), Tewksbury, MaJuly 5, 2014
Pros: great people, great benefits
Cons: huge changes going on organizationally with no communication/flowdown. everyone is in the dark.
The most enjoyable part of working for this company is the challenge of working in such a fast and changing environment and hitting the goals - never a dull moment. The hardest part of the job is maneuvering around very process-oriented folks. You learn quickly to "manage" them and get done what needs to be done on time and on budget.
